Reports Of A Stabbing At Once Upon A Time In LA Sent The Festival Into Chaos

Back in June, the lineup for a new hip-hop focused festival in Los Angeles dropped, and fans were thrilled it included so many local legends. Once Upon A Time In LA counted Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent as headliners, and appearances from a whole host of R&B and hip-hop talent, including legendary performers like Al Green, Warren G and DJ Quik, and embattled LA rapper Drakeo The Ruler, who was finally freed once more after a very convoluted court case.

But in a potentially horrific turn of events at Banc of California stadium tonight, reports have surfaced on social media that someone was attacked during the festival. So far, only a few tweets from fans on the ground at the event have come up, but the claims that Drakeo The Ruler was stabbed in the neck began circulating due to an original post that came from power 106 DJ Letty. Letty has since deleted the tweet that included the information about Drakeo’s injury, so the victim’s identity and condition hasn’t been confirmed.

A journalist on the ground, Amanda Fitzpatrick, shared videos of the chaotic scene at the festival along with the report that the headliners Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent will not perform. A prior tweet discussed “intermission,” so whether or not the show will go on is still unclear. She stated that backstage exits have been closed and she was told by security that the festival is “now a crime scene.”

It’s worth noting that Amanda doesn’t have any information regarding Drakeo, and nothing official has been released by Drakeo’s camp or from the festival. Drakeo was scheduled to perform at the event around 8:30 PM PST tonight but never got the chance to take the stage. CBS LA also reported that via their Twitter “one person was stabbed” during the at the festival and that according to LA City Fire Department, the victim has been transported to the hospital.

This is an emerging story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
